    Hello!
    My name is Nicole and I have a hobby farm in Eastern WA. We have over 100 chickens and a couple dozen ducks. Welsumers, Cuckoo Marans, Americaunas, Buff Orpingtons, Black Australorps, Silkies, a mix of new bantams, a few accidental cross breeds, and a whole lot of various meat birds! I sell eggs at our local farmers market, and we're branching out to Thanksgiving turkeys and some produce this year. I have 3 full time jobs, Ben is 3 and Avalyn is 20 months, and our farm is 3. We also have 5 goats, 4 alpacas, 2 miniture horses and a rabbit. I'm a crafter, involved in our local MOPS, and gardener. I'm new to, but excited to start canning this summer. Spring is a time of frenzy and excitement for our family, Summer is a blur, Fall is hunting season {!!!!}, and winter means relaxing for a few weeks. I'd love to learn a few tricks to make life run a little smoother, but overall, I'm excited to explore and learn from those more seasoned than I!
